Tottenham boss rules out move for international striker

Harry Redknapp has stated that he is unlikely to make a move to bring Carlos Tevez to Tottenham as the club cannot afford to meet either Manchester City’s asking price or the player’s wage demands, despite his desire to sign him.

The Argentina international has become an outcast at Eastlands and is locked in a fierce dispute with boss Roberto Mancini as he was charged for refusing to warm-up against Bayern Munich in their 2-0 Champions League defeat at the Allianz Arena last month.

Tevez was fined two weeks wages for the incident, and it seems imminent that he will leave the club, at the right price, in the January transfer window.

The Spurs boss revealed earlier this week that he would relish the opportunity to sign Tevez and admitted he is a keen admirer of the 27-year-old, but has come to the conclusion that the move is not financially possible.

“Would I like him? Yes,” he explained. “Anyone would like him. He is a fantastic player.

“He is an amazing player. When he plays no one gives more than he does. He works his socks off, he runs, he chases, he plays, he tackles and he scores goals.

Redknapp added, “He is the full package when he plays so I don’t think there are too many teams who wouldn’t like him.

“Affording him is a different matter. That’s the problem. We couldn’t afford him really.”
